This is a tool to change the LED effects and the DPI setting on a Logitech G203.
It's pretty much a port of the tool g203-led by smasty
(https://github.com/smasty/g203-led). But this one is written in Zig.
- scdoc (for generating the man page)
Run the following commands to build and install g203ctl.
Feel free to adjust the prefix (set with
-p) to your needs.
zig build -Doptimize=ReleaseSmall
zig build install -p /usr/local
Uninstallation is possible with:
zig build uninstall -p /usr/local
- While this application should work with the Logitech G203 Prodigy mouse as
well, this was never tested. If you can confirm that this application works
on the Prodigy version, feel free to let me know and I can remove this
disclaimer. (I only own the Lightsync version.)
- This is the first program that I've written with Zig. Some parts may look
horrible for an advanced Zig programmer. If you notice any ugly workarounds
and you're able to fix them, I'm more than happy to include your patches. I'm
not very proud of some of the stuff that I wrote here. But as of now, I simply
don't know of a better solution. That being said, the application should still
work as expected. I don't think I've left any serious big bugs in there. At
least I hope so...
- This was also the first time that I've worked with libusb and USB
communication in general. Everything appears to be working. But I'm still not
that experienced with this. So if you think that something isn't quite done
the right way, you might be correct. Just let me know.
- I have no clue what the "intro" effect is supposed to do. Nothing changes on
my mouse (Lightsync). I also never touched the original Logitech software.
I just ported it over from g203-led in case it's doing something for others.
Let me know if you know what this is for.
